If you are looking for a fun, easy, romantic read with a little ~spice~, this book will do it. The Bridgerton books are the perfect summer read and I am looking forward to reading the next books. I didn’t find the second epilogue necessary, however. It felt like it just dragged on what could have been a fine conclusion to the story. I see why the author did it, but I was fine without an epilogue that is many years after the setting of the book.
